Print driver settings not pushing from server

I am using the Xerox Global Print Driver PS 5520.600.0.0

Server: Windows 2012 R2 (print share)

Client: Windows 7 64bit

 

The settings that I make on the server do not propogate to the client. I have tried uninstalling the printers and reinstalling on the client with no luck.

 

Server Settings:

Re: Print driver settings not pushing from server

Printing preferences isn't supposed to populate to the client, for that you use Printing Defaults as seen here server-side

Printing preferences only carries down to the client if the Windows build and architecture is the same, Printing defaults will carry down no matter the OS level.

Re: Print driver settings not pushing from server

Thanks Joe, that makes sense now. When I checked out the printing defaults, in this case notifications are all disabled on the server but still enabled on the client.

 

I turned off notifications after the printer was already installed on the workstation. I deleted the printer and reinstalled it from the share with no luck.

Re: Print driver settings not pushing from server

Sorry, i cannot replicate this, it works perfectly from Server 2012 to Win 7 (tried x86 and x64)

 

The only time it doesn't is in Win 10 version 1607 (Anniversary edition) and that is just due to a bug that has already been patched by MS.

 

If it is specific to the one driver, call it in to Xerox 2nd level and they will spar it if they can somehow recreate it in the lab, else, use another driver (Older GPD, or the Native printer driver)

Re: Print driver settings not pushing from server

Thank again Joe. To explain a little further what is going on, I made changes to the SNMPv1 settings on the printer and in the port settings on the print share (see below). Do you see anything I am doing wrong here? Printing works fine but I still receive the printer communication error.

Re: Print driver settings not pushing from server

I don't use SNMP on my ports as I get too many Offline issues client side due to the fact it means the driver ends up sending double the traffic due to be used in the driver already under the Configuration tab and then it doubles again (effectively quadruples) from the client connection. It is possible this is where your issue comes from.

Re: Print driver settings not pushing from server

I am seeing the same problem, i created an account to ask this question here.

 

Windows 7 64bit server, to WIndows 7 64bit client.  Doesnt pull the "Saved Settings" details from the server when on the server there setup in the Printer Defualts.

 

HP drivers had no issues with this at all (on the same server and same PC), so its not a username / password / sharing issue, it appears driver related.

 

SNMP is used to pull the printer details from the pritner hardware to the driver thats connected to it over direct IP address (at least with HP it is), items like tray counts, stacker / staplier installed, the amount of RAM and as far as i know (Network Specialist over 20 years), these sharing systems (Saved Settings) are direct coms from the sharing server to the client PC

 

Many Thanks
